They defied an advice given by His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to have a peaceful demonstration. They defied the government and police orders to organise the rally at an indoor stadium. And they defied the law and order.
Now, its no point for PM Najib to hold any kind of negotiation with them as their main intention was not for a 'clean' election system but to bring about instability to the country, chase the investors away and wreck the social harmony.
They just wanted a wide publicity, which the got. It has nothing to do with Anwar Ibrahim either as Ambiga herself has avowed that Bersih was not the voice of Pakatan Rakyat or the PKR.
Then, who did they speak for? The answer - for a few anti-Malaysia, anti-govt, anti-multiracial politics and anti-institutional monarchy leaders who think Malaysians deserve a new system like Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and other Arab-Muslim nations.
They have forgotten the fact that Malaysia differs a lot from this countries. And they were very fortunate that the Malaysian police were very much human in dealing with them.
They are subversive people and are considered dangerous to the national security. I personally believe they will organise similar rallies in the near future as the authority has been very 'soft' on them yesterday.
Ambiga - who caused all the chaos - has won when about 50,000 people joined the rally. The 1,401 nabbed will be released on police bail in the a day or two.
However, the didnt realise the devastating impact poised by the rally. The whole capital city was at a standstill, business closed, tourists detoured, massive traffic jam and the public transportation system was disrupted.
No. Ambiga has forgotten that Bersih did not represent majority of the rakyat who are against them. She and her friends can claim victory now but should they have any plan for a second round of rally, I believe the rakyat who were adversely affected by 9 July rally would stop them!
If they want to know what's peoples' power is really all about, try a second rally!
